How To Stop A Hurricane took the 2008 Pariscience film festival by storm. Part human drama and part technological exploration, How To Stop A Hurricane is a fantastic science thriller about one of nature?s greatest forces, and Man’s attempt to contain it. The film uses an imaginative mix of computer animated scenarios and live action to “test” the theories of inventors and experts. This garnered it The Innovation Middle Schooler’s Prize at this year’s Pariscience film festival, the international festival of scientific films which takes place every autumn in Paris, France. And middle-schoolers have got to be the toughest audience there is.
